Event Description

Part Two of Annual Lecture Series 2018: Keep the Wheels Turning. Presented by Bill Calimer, Wheelwright, Calimer’s Wheel Shop, Waynesboro, Pa.

After a career in cancer research at Hershey Medical Center, Bill Calimer returned to Waynesboro and took over his father’s wheel and carriage shop in 1980. His father and grandfather were blacksmiths and wheelwrights, and Calimer had been around wheel-making all his life. Calimer’s Wheel Shop specializes in replacement wooden wheels for antique automobiles. These wheels require great precision and an expertise developed through experience. Calimer will share stories of his unique trade, including the hundreds of spoke patterns and the specific type of wood that is best for reproducing automobile wheels. He will discuss the process of creating by hand accurate, durable and strong wheels for vintage cars, ranging from the once-ubiquitous Model T Ford, to Stanley Steamers and even early Mercedes models. Free. For more information, visit, call 717-762-0373 or email to

A masterpiece of streamline styling, beautifully restored by a marque enthusiast. Equipped from new

with radio,heater,and Columbia 2-speed axle. LCOC Best in Show,finely detailed and fabulous to drive. ​​ This stunning 1939 Zephyr is a beautiful example of the elegant and highly desirable 3-window coupe. Fully restored to a very high standard, this rare Zephyr is one of just 2,500 of this body style built in 1939. Optional equipment included a radio, heater, defroster, and Columbia two-speed rear axle. Finished in Coach Maroon (which it wears today), it is believed the Alworth family of Duluth originally purchased this car. The Alworths were wealthy landowners, developers, and iron ore miners. According to information from the previous owner, this car was chauffeur-driven during its time with the Alworths, which is quite unusual considering the 3-window coupe was a sporty “personal” luxury car for the owner-driver.
